As I've mentioned in a previous post, http://elgincarshops.blogspot.com/2018/05/2nd-times-charm.html, the ground cover in the area I'm modeling takes a little effort to get looking right. The dirt in the area has a decidedly grey colour.
Not something you see alot in the scenery supplies, so I've taken to painting the initial dirt cover to get things closer to the tones I'm seeing.
Freshly applied Scenic Express Fine dirt.
First pass with Tamiya XF-78 wooden deck tan
2nd pass with Tamiya XF-57 buff
3rd pass with Tamiya XF-55 deck tan
the final result is a ground cover that has hints of browns through a decidedly grey colour. Now I can come back and add weeds, etc. That'll be for another day
